The U.S. Navy’s oldest active squadron is VFA-14, aka the Tophatters. Formed in 1919 and based at NAS Lemoore, they fly the stunning F-18E Super Hornet. We produced a series of watches for active duty pilots, which were worn on deployment, shown here in the cockpit of a Super Hornet. The watch is our 42mm Classic case with red bezel ring, automatic movement and metal bracelet. The dial design features a front-view of an F18E, the Naval Wings of Gold pilot wings, and the Tophatters patch. The casebacks were personalized to each pilot with their details, years of service and deployments.
